Clifton victorious in playoffs again

By Brett Voss

But for the Clifton Cubs, it proved to be a trophy-raising, standard-setting night. In a rematch of last season’s bi-district playoff game, Clifton left no doubt as the Cubs completely dominated Palmer from the opening kickoff on their way to a convincing 46-7 victory at Alvarado’s Charlie Head Stadium last Friday.
